Description: Camels represent an important part of Emirati Culture and the Arabs believe them to be the gift of God. The Emiratis consider it as a privilege to own camels. The UAE summers are quite hot with the temperature goes above 45 degrees and humidity averaging over 90%. It is the season where people prefer to stay indoors and avoid exposing themselves to the hot weather. But this is not the case with the ‘ships of the desert’. The Emiratis consider this season as the best time to provide good care for their loving Camels. With the beaches of the UAE are comparatively empty in the hot summer mornings, the Camels will be taken to the beach in groups and will be allowed to swim in the beach. As per the camel herds, swimming in water help the camels to cool their body temperature down and help them to heal small wounds if any on their body by exposing themselves to seawater. It also helps the camels to kill the body bugs and make them feel refreshed. They will also be treated with some herbs followed by a bath in the sea. It is a very rare moment since Camels are expected to be seen in the desert. The camel herds who spent their life mostly in the desert environment will also enjoy the break and refresh themselves before the next racing season which generally starts in October and lasts up to April of the subsequent year. The owners along with their family members at times join their favorite animals making it a celebration in summer. the pictures are taken between July and August 2020
Desert is one of the best locations for portrait and fashion photography. It is the place where you can hear silence and nobody is in a hurry. Just take camera, beautiful model and some water with you. Sand dunes will suggest you the direction. Catch the flow and enjoy creative process.
